Timeline interactions enrich students’ understanding of events within specific historical contexts and reinforce important dates. Items on each timeline are uniquely spaced according to the gaps between events; this aids in understanding time elapsed between both distant and adjacent events.
- Timeline interactions are exploratory, ungraded activities.
- Individual timelines may begin at up to 200,000 B.C.
- It is possible to augment timelines with select web-hosted images or videos.
- Include dates (and eras) as appropriate for the content.
